The various numbers are real helpful but I didn’t think we had to post; I just looked at the Red Cross number and called.

Gee .. I didn't see any INTERNATIONAL hotlines listed.

97,000 people stranded in New Orleans without drinking water,
without food, without electricity, without medicine, with water
STILL rising ... and the heat is sweltering at over 90 degrees.

Millions of others in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama without
drinking water or electricity.

Anyone know of any INTERNATIONAL teams on the way to help?
International money donations? International ANYTHING?
I'd be really interested to know.

Venezuela says it will helpout with fuel, people, food ...
I guess we will see if it comes or not. Anyone else?
I haven't heard of any.

Many international charities are already getting involvement...just google international aid..and yes before anyone else askes, Russia, Iran and even Venezuela has offered condolences and aid, don't know what our "friends" have offered yet, but I'm sure the international community is just waiting to find out the best way and what exactly is needed at the moment.

Red Crescent and a few other not so familiar names are already in action, as well as a variety of religious and other charities all across the country.

EXCELLENT NEWS! The TV News hasn't said ANYTHING and I have read
NOTHING on the news sites on the internet about this. If anyone
knows of anything specific .. I'd love to hear about it.

(I'd REALLY like to hear what Saudi Arabia will do (if anything)
to help. Like dropping oil prices??? )

UPDATE: Russia offers help to U.S. after deadly hurricane


MOSCOW, August 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russia is ready to assist the United States in dealing with the damage caused by hurricane Katrina, which has taken 68 lives so far and left behind a tremendous amount of devastation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a message to U.S. President George Bush Tuesday.

"Russia deeply sympathizes with Americans, who faced a disaster of such a colossal scale, and is ready to offer necessary assistance," Putin said.

Putin asked Bush to extend his condolences to families and relatives of those killed in the disaster.

"Accept my sincere words of regret in connection with the natural calamity in the USA. I know that hurricane Katrina, which swept the southeast coast of the country, resulted in deaths, left tens of thousands of Americans without roofs over their heads, and caused substantial damage to the region's economy," the message said.


Iran offers condolences to relatives of U.S. hurricane victims

Rev. Jackson Meets With Venezuela's Chavez

``We never lose hope that we'll regain a good tone with Mr. Bush's government,'' said Chavez, who offered Venezuelan aid in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.



Saudi Arabia to increase oil output



JEDDAH, 30 August 2005 — Saudi Arabia yesterday announced its readiness to increase crude oil production to 11 million bpd if world market faces any shortage in oil supplies as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

yeah right. I read plenty. When I said
that I had seen NOTHING on this, I ment it.
One of the stories you posted was from
something called - RIA Novosti
Now THAT is something I have never seen
before. Normally I look at MSNBC, FOX, YAHOO,
etc. for news online. RIA Novosti isn't your
every day news source. At least not for me.

IRS has a heart?

I found this and post FYI.......

WASHINGTON (AP)_The Internal Revenue Service has extended tax deadlines for individuals and businesses affected by Hurricane Katrina.


Very little in the form of relief at the moment but I provided for anyone affected by the storm..

Just a note, there is a specific Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund you can contribute to, so that the money goes just towards these kinds of disasters....

What are we paying for? The food and water now or rebuilding the city?

Good question.... I sent my check to the Red Cross, I hope that it goes for food, medical and shelter...

I feel that those Casinos that were there, should "put up" the money for helping to rebuild the cities... think about all the money that the people spent in those places....

I was unable to get through to the Red Cross on the phone so I went to their website and was able to donate with my credit card.

So far they have raised $14,364,520.00 for the Hurricane 2005 Relief.

I posted this link in the other "relief" topic,
www.infowars.com...

I would be careful with giving any donations to the Red Cross, they pocketed half of the 9/11 donations, according to CNN.

Because its a Federal US list. Also notice that operation blessing is there, and that operation blessing is a front set up by Pat Robertson that helped him mine gold in africa.
